These are the new shopfronts in original style that were recently installed in Myddleton Road, Bowes Park, replacing the unattractive frontages that had been fitted to these shops.

The restoration work cost more than £200,000, the funds coming from Haringey Council, Historic England and the shopkeepers.  As well as the work on the shopfronts, new sash windows have been fitted to upper storeys.

An official opening ceremony was held on 7th July, organised by We Love Myddleton Road, the voluntary group that has been working to restore the (extremely) faded glory of Myddleton Road.  The group's work has been paying dividends and recent months have seen the opening of promising new businesses which should help revive the street.

Myddleton Road is now home to two restaurants/cafes which regularly feature live music:  the Step and Mum's Bistro.

Haringey Council is also funding the installation of new shopfronts in parts of Tottenham.  Similar schemes have in the past been carried out by Newham Council in Forest Gate and by Waltham Forest Council in Leyton.
